Holy Week Blitz Build 2016: Tuesday
Day two started with a beautiful pastel sunrise, and another prayer circle. It was warmer today and the sun was shining. A really nice day to be building!
At the end of the first day the exterior looked like a house and now the interior is starting to look like one too. The drywall is hung, textured and painted. The trim and interior doors have been stained and are ready to be installed. Some 35 boxes of flooring are staged and ready to go tomorrow. The ground has been graded, top soil raked out, and grass seed spread.
It takes many hands to make such wonderful things happen. Young and old, male and female, experienced and inexperienced. It’s all part of the miracle. Exactly the right people at exactly the right place to do exactly what needs to be done at exactly the right time. God’s hands can be seen through it all.
Alexa was there for most of the day today. Jim was there for as much time as his work would allow. Alexa’s parents and neighbors came over to see the new home. I heard many times what a blessing this is. How much they needed this. What a difference this house is making already. Tears of joy and gratitude filled more than one person’s eyes.
You know, I’m reminded of a verse from the book of Joel in the Bible. “Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.” What dreams will the older folks dream because they were a part of building this home? What visions will our young people see, what prophesies will they have to share because of what they witnessed this week?
At Hosanna it is often said that God’s work is everyone’s business. Thank you for all of you who have chosen to help with the work God is doing through Hosanna Industries this week!
